Super Bowl XLVIII prognosticating

The higher the game-time temperature, the better it will be for Denver.

If the game comes down to a kicker, take your pick.

Both Denver's Matt Prater and Seattle's Steven Hauschka have had awesome seasons. Prater made 25 of 26 field goals during the regular season, including an NFL-record 64-yarder against Tennessee. He was 4-of-4, including a 54-yarder, in the AFC title game against New England.

Hauschka was 33-of-35 during the regular season and 6-of-6 in the playoffs.

Both are clutch. Both can make long kicks. They're friends and former teammates. With the game on the line, you can't go wrong with either.

Manning will be Super Bowl MVP.

The absurd legacy talk will end Sunday night with Manning hoisting the Lombardi Trophy and being named the game's MVP. A day after winning his fifth league MVP award, Manning will become the first quarterback to win a Super Bowl with two different teams.

Some legacy.

Pete Carroll said it best Thursday: "We may play exceeding well and still not beat them."

Denver 27, Seattle 20.
